K-12 school prototypes
Concept Architect for
GHD Pty, Abu Dhabi
The Abu Dhabi Education Council called for
proposals for prototypes for three different
schools, according to age and gender groupings.
As the construction costs were emphatically
low as stipulated, the proposals were rather
simple in their architectural formation. A standard
prototypical arrangement was presented that
emphasized a street, or 'souk' , along which
potentially public activities like gym, auditorium
and cafeteria were arranged, with multiple
entrances also to the age-grouped classrooms.
